Simon KesslerAll plans by this Coach
Do you want to achieve the best time trial form of your Life? The training in this plan is proven to work and has already won a World Championship bronze medal and a US National Championship!
This plan is designed by a former international pro rider and now coach to top professionals and local racing stars.
The Plan is designed for men and women road cyclists and triathletes who are intermediate to advanced level racer. (cat 3-5 & Masters 35+) and train between 8-12 hours/week. Most of the weeks are around 8-9 hours/week in this plan, with the option to extend ride times.
The training is designed to first increase your threshold power. You will then dramatically increase your VO2 power and time trial speed with highly specific intervals. The final weeks will bring on peak form with a time trial simulation and motor pacing simulation rides.
This plan works great for a goal time trial 8 weeks away. Before starting the plan you should have a good level of endurance fitness and already have performed sub threshold training. Ideally, 2 months+ of regular training should precede this plan.
This plan is the result of 20 years of professional racing and coaching experience combined with the latest training methods. You will find the training plan highly descriptive and precise, guaranteeing you get the most out of each workout.
Please note you should receive a "Plan Description" PDF with the plan which includes more details and a link to calculate your specific heart rate or power zones. If you do not receive the PDF please email me at: email@example.com.
